Aftermarket seat heaters into factory switched

So I recently just installed some prp daily driver seats into my jk which had seat heaters originally. My question is has any successfully wired in the aftermarket elements to work with the stock switches. I tried cutting the new connectors off the new heaters and soldering then to the factory harness but when ever I try and turn the heater on the switch lights up for about three seconds then turns off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I haven't done this but if you have the wires running from the stock switches you could try using them to trip a relay to power the new seat heaters. Maybe they are cutting off b/c there's a different power draw on the new ones or something.
